Stifler's Beer - Yellow body, white foamy head, LOTS of yeast floating around in there...but taste is great balance of citrus, lemon and yeast - not overpowering on the lemon like many saisons - nice feel too

From can. Hazy bright yellow color with off-white head. Aroma has sweet wheat and vanilla notes with some floral yeast. Taste is sweet at first, somehow milky, yeasty, slightly bitter and astringent on the finish. Medium body, soft mouthfeel. Quite nice beer overall, seems like a combination of a witbier and a saison.

Can from early April. Poured into Teku glass.

L: Small, 1F head with poor retention, only spotting lacing, and a tiny cap and ring. Beer is a mostly-clear light golden.

S: Citrus, Belgian yeast, kandi, banana, and clove.

T: Follows nose. Very Belgian, almost too traditional for an Alchemist beer. Very tasty. Kandi really comes through in this.

F: Light bodied, medium carbonation. Very crisp and dry, easy to drink. Great construction and balance.

O: More like "Oooh la la Saison!" Excellent example of the style and very close to Hill Farmstead quality.

Generally I am not a saison guy, however of all saisons I have tried this is one of the better options. the best thing about this saison is the clean aftertaste.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a decent head. The head breaks quickly, but there is nice lacing. The smell is traditional saison, with elements of Belgian yeast, candi, some pepper and a slight grassiness. The flavor follows the aroma. Lots of Belgian coming through. The candi and the yeast are quite prevalent. Feel is medium with medium carbonation. A nice crisp finish.

Well, I am not surprised that this is good, being an Alchemist beer. But I also think it is one of the better American saisons I have had.
